    Ford just opened up the app link API to developers. Only Android and iOS are supported at this time. Ford sync is another MS branded product that doesn't give support to its own products.

    Sometimes I really feel like windows phone is just a hobby for Microsoft. They don't want to throw the resources at it to make it exceptional. After 2 years of windows phone I'm starting to get annoyed with how MS is handling the product. I can't keep being a cheerleader. As a developer, there are still key things missing from the SDK for no good reason.

    I talked to one of Fords Sync developers today and asked him if they have any plans to add WP support to Applink.

    He answered: "We're looking at WP but no firm plans at present. Its an interesting OS and i'm a fan so hoping we do add support"

    And if MS would have bought HERE they would have had an instant in with all automakers.

    Dumb move really....MS should have bought the whole of Nokia and then turned around and sold off NSN...pretty simple.
